Following the success of Fright on Marina during the October school half term, Brighton Marina will be creating a free, interactive trail for 3 days and a live feed to Father Christmas at the North Pole, during the school Christmas holidays.

Between 19th Dec – 21st Dec, Brighton Marina will be transformed into a mixture of magical, wintery window displays, installations & live performances for a themed Christmas trail entitled ’12 Alternative Days of Christmas’, a comical twist on the traditional Christmas Carol – 12 Days of Christmas.

Artpod and Fabricate, who created the spooky window trail for Fright on Marina, which sold out, are returning to create a multi sensory event perfect for families and children this Christmas, whilst offering a Covid-compliant environment to enjoy themselves.

12 venues across the Marina will be dressed up to represent the 12 alternative days of Christmas complete with performers including 11 naughty elves, 8 udders need milking, 2 snowmen melting, with a snow queen performer and other alternative fun characters.

Sophie Chandler, Marketing Manager for Brighton marina said, “Our Halloween Trail was such a success that we decided we would do something similar for Christmas. Families and children loved the installations and the interactive trail. Within this event there will also be a hidden game, which will involve finding characters from the Christmas carol within the trail.

At the end of the trail there will be a free gift for children and the opportunity to see Father Christmas via a live video feed from the North Pole.”

Similar to Fright on Marina, participants will need to book a timed slot to walk around the site, with a downloaded map of the route.
